Hopkins County sheriff’s deputies went to Quinlan Wednesday morning and arrested a 28-year-old man for online solicitation of child.
Chief Sheriff’s Investigator Lewis Tatum identified the man as Gary Allen Lovejoy of Quinlan.
“Investigator Daniel Winn and Sgt. Corley Weatherford had been working an online solicitation of a minor case on Lovejoy,” Tatum said. “They had developed enough evidence, went to the district attorney’s office and got a warrant.”
The deputies were in Quinlan early yesterday and arrested Lovejoy at his residence and returned him to Hopkins County.
Tatum said the man had been in online communication with what he thought was a 14-year-old girl but was actually one of the investigators.
After being arraigned on the charge Thursday morning, Lovejoy was released on $35,000 bond on the online solicitation of a minor charge.
